Triple Treat: The Leather Jacket

I once read if there’s any international symbol for cool, it has to be the leather jacket. And I tend to agree—all you need to do is throw a leather jacket on over almost any outfit and add a pair of sunnies and you’ll instantly have a rockstar/movie star vibe happening … I mean, look at Marlon Brando, James Dean, Tay Tay, Debbie Harry and Madonna.

Plus if you buy a jacket in a classic style and colour, the same leather jacket can be worn time and again over the years simply by updating what it’s paired with—from wide-legged pants, to flirty floral dresses.

If you’re on a limited budget but want to update your wardrobe with a leather jacket that looks expensive and feels amazing, I’ve got great news for you!

Jeanswest have released three women’s leather jackets, all made using 100% Ethically Sourced NZ Leather and priced at $299. (Check them out here)

I chose the Joy Leather Jacket (kindly gifted) which features a sleek, classic style with a higher neckline and on-trend, asymmetrical zip front as well as a tailored fit to the body.

By adding a leather jacket with the right fit, finishes and style that suits your personality, lifestyle and wardrobe (and budget!) you can look feminine, chic and sexy and, like any good staple, it can look completely different depending on how it’s styled.

With that in mind, here are three ways I’ll be wearing the Jeanswest Joy Leather Jacket this Autumn:

For the office

For evenings

Dressing for evening doesn’t always mean you have to wear a cocktail dress. Separates like this pleated midi skirt and tee along with a sleek, classic leather jacket feels fresh.

For weekends

Do you own a leather jacket? If so, do you have a go-to outfit you always love to pair it with for that rockstar vibe?
